Germanic Javelin

A javelin is a light spear designed primarily to be thrown, historically as a ranged weapon. The word javeline comes from Middle English and it derives from Old French javelin, a diminutive of javelot, which meant spear. The shaft is made of solid ash and has untreated finish. The spear-tip (javelin) is not mounted. Two nails for fastening on the shaft are included in delivery. We recommend an additional gluing with hot glue or birch pitch. The ash-shaft tapers in both directions. The butt cap made of metal provides the counterweight the spearhead, so you can throw precisely. It also prevents splitting of the shaft end of unprotected wood.

Advisory Service: Questions and Answers

How and what materials are your daggers made from?

The daggers are approximately made as follows. The basic shape of the blade is made by a laser CNC machine. It is burned from spring steel. The semi-finished blade follows then in the groove cutter, where the cutting edge and the groove are milled. The blade is then oil-quenched and tempered to the desired hardness. Then the guard and pommel is attached to the blade tang. The tang is usually peened at the end (behind the pommel) and the cross-guard hard soldered with brass. Hardwood plates are placed under the handle wrapping from genuine cowhide so that the handle is sufficiently robust for a safe grasp. The steels surfaces obtain the desired finish in the end - with a wire brush or with a felt disc with polishing paste.
